The Nemours Doctor Will See You Now … At Osceola Regional Medical Center
Nemours Children’s Hospital is partnering with a nearby competitor.
Osceola Regional Medical Center will have Nemours doctors and specialists provide care on site, under a deal announced Monday. The agreement will expand in summer, when Nemours doctors will staff a new 6-bed pediatric ICU unit at Osceola Regional Medical Center.
The deal is interesting in part because Osceola Regional’s parent company is for-profit HCA, while Nemours is owned by a charity.
Nemours was only 37 percent occupied in 2014, and lost $54 million on operations. Osceola Regional made $42.3 million in net income in the same year.
